The Math Circles of Chicago serves children in grades 5 through 12. Our free programs are held at eight different hubs, at five levels, with the levels explained here. Sessions generally meet once every other week, and the grade levels served vary and are detailed below. Every hub is open to children attending any school.

MC2 sessions at all program levels are meeting in person this year, although we are continuing with online offerings for 5th to 8th graders (see the entry at the bottom of this page). Register here.
